Examples: The Making of 40 Photographsby Ansel Adams
Synopses & Reviews
Ansel Adams recounts the circumstances surrounding the making of many of his most famous photographs and the methods he used in their realization. Each image is accompanied by a narrative that explores the technical and aesthetic problems presented by the subject, and includes reminiscences of the places and people involved and anecdotes on matters ranging from timing to the weather. Specific technical information about the camera and lens, filters, exposure times and development and printing of the image is given in an agreeable balance with more general information. Further technical considerations can be explored by using the references in each selection to the books in "The New Adams Photography Series".
The distinguished photographer shares his experiences and details the circumstances, methods, and technical and aesthetic problems surrounding the creation of forty of his most famous photographs.
Each of Adams 40 photographs presented here is accompanied by an engaging narrative that explores the technical and aesthetic problems presented by the subject and includes reminiscences of the places and people involved.
